Yup! I did it once again!
Happy news on a rainy day! Just checked off one of my goals for this month!
Trulia rewards agents that have been continuosly contributing the their community, by posting blogs, participating in Q&A section, where buyers have a chance to post any questions that might have about the neighborhoods, real estate transaction process, etc. I love doing this because it helps me stay in touch to who my buyers are, what their problems are, what questions do they most seek answers to, etc.
I also appreciate reading other real estate agents blogs. This industry constantly evolves and we need to stay on top of the latest and greatest developments, as well as keep a close eye on all the legislature that is coming out affecting real estate laws, mortgage regulations, zoning, etc. I think Zillow is a great option for buyers, as well, but I have to admit, I haven’t been as active on that website. It doesn’t seem to have a blog for real estate agents, or maybe it’s just that I haven’t discovered it yet.. I do have a profile on both though! So if you guys prefer one site over the other, please let me know!

Hi, there is a very interesting question that just came up on Trulia.com from one of the buyers in San Diego.
The question stated: “we are pre approved for a loan, we saw a house we like, they won’t show the house unless we summit a bid.. is that how it works? how can we put a bid on a house with out even seen the house? is the first house we like but I haven’t even seen the house.. the realtor told us that in order to see the house we need to summit a bid.. isn’t a bid a commitment to buy the house? thanks for your help!”
I’m sure this buyer is not the only one that comes in this crazy market and is confused by what they hear.
I understand your frustration. It doesn’t feel right to submit an offer on the house you haven’t even seen inside.
And no, usually it is not how it works. Usually.
Usually you get to see the place before making an offer. But there are exceptions.
Questions to ask your realtor – why?.
It is possible that the place you are looking at is a short sale, and possible occupied with uncooperative tenants making it impossible to show unless you have an accepted offer. It is possible that the seller is not motivated to sell or show to prospects unless he is convinced they are serious about buying it ( submitting an offer would be the proof he/she is looking for ). Or it could be a number of other different reasons.
As a buyer, you don’t have to do anything you don’t choose, of course, but if you do like the home, at least from the outside, the location, price, size, etc, and possibly have seen pictures, I believe submitting an offer would be a good choice.
Remember submitting an offer doesn’t mean, that you MUST close escrow and buy the house. Submitting an offer means a “serious intent” of purchasing the property. You can always submit an offer ”contingent on physical inspection” which is how we do it 99% in the industry any way.
You have a right to cancel your contract within your contingencies periods, usually 17 days after acceptance while your initial deposit is protected and fully refundable.
